Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said QB Nick Foles will be his quarterback moving forward beyond 2013 and into next year if he stays healthy.
Huddle Up: Foles has played unexpectedly well, and the guys around him have benefited. Keep this in mind in keeper and dynasty leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick (hamstring) will practice in full Tuesday, Nov. 26, but head coach Chip Kelly said he will back up QB Nick Foles in Week 13. Kelly said Foles doesn't need to look over his shoulder and should have a 'desire to excel, not fear of failure.'
Huddle Up: No surprise here as Foles has scored at least 20 fantasy points in 3 straight games. This week, though, he faces his toughest test yet with the Cardinals' rugged D coming to Philly.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (concussion) declared himself ready for the team's Week 9 game. "I am ready to play," Foles said. "It was a long week last week. The most important thing is to be healthy."
Huddle Up: It will be Foles back at the controls with Vick already ruled out this week and likely a few weeks beyond that. Now the trick is for Foles to guide the Philly offense into the end zone -- a place the Eagles haven't visited the past 2 games aside from a special-teams TD.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (concussion) is expected to return to practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. He is likely to start in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Either scenario, Foles or Matt Barkley, is a step down from Michael Vick. However, after aggravating his hamstring last week it's unlikely we'll see Vick for a while.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (concussion) has not yet been cleared to practice, and it appears his concussion might linger.
Huddle Up: It sounds like the Matt Barkley era might have begun in earnest in Philadelphia. From the looks of things, it's not worth picking him up.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (concussion) won't practice this week, but he has done some conditioning and attended meetings.
Huddle Up: After 2 mixed-result starts, it's back to the bench for Foles as Michael Vick returns for a tasty matchup against the not-so- formidable Giants.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said QB Nick Foles (concussion) suffered a concussion in the team's Week 7 game and will go through the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Hopefully it's not a serious injury, but concussions seem to knock players out for at least one week. It seems the chances are good Michael Vick will start, depending on his hamstring.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is expected to start in the team's Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as QB Michael Vick (hamstring) deals with a hamstring issue.
Huddle Up: This will be Foles' chance to overtake Michael Vick for the starting job. He performed well when Vick went out with injury. He gets a decent matchup against the Buccaneers this week, but don't fall all over yourself to put him in your lineups. In the meantime, make sure Vick is out of your lineups.

The Philadelphia Eagles are unlikely to trade QB Nick Foles now that he's been named the backup to QB Michael Vick.
Huddle Up: There would be a market for Foles' services, but the Eagles are smart to keep their options open. Why deal a player who may end up starting a few games into the season if Vick struggles out of the gate in Chip Kelly's new offense or gets hurt and misses time like Vick has a habit of doing?

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly told reporters QB Nick Foles would start the team's next exhibition game against the Carolina Panthers. Foles was 5 of 6 for 43 yards after an early fumble against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Foles will get his shot against Carolina and he'll need to take advantage with an impressive performance. While Foles didn't play poorly in the preseason opener, Mike Vick looked sharp and appears to be in line to start Week 1.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is said to be in the lead in the quarterback battle because he outplayed QB Michael Vick in OTAs and minicamp.
Huddle Up: Many insist Vick is a better fit for Chip Kelly's offense because of the running dimension, but the truth is we really don't know what Kelly's NFL offense will look like at this point. We do know, though, that Kelly is familiar with Foles from their Pac-12 days, and that might have given the University of Arizona QB an early leg up. Don't expect a definitive decision here, though, until well into the preseason.

Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he was impressed with QB Nick Foles during his limited playing time last season and he will have an opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job in 2013. 'I think it's to be determined but Nick showed an awful lot before he broke his hand,' Lurie said. 'Poise and accuracy. We're real excited about Nick. I think the best thing is to say to be determined how it's going to work, but he's going to have a great opportunity. He's really bright, he's a very hard worker, he has all the intangibles. We just have to see how he can maximize it or not.'
Huddle Up: Foles had his fantasy moments last season, but they were few and far between as he threw for only 6 TDs and had 2 300-yard games in 7 starts. Still, this promises to be a whole new Eagles team with a new coach and a new offense, and it will be intriguing to see what Foles can do if he gets the starting call.

The Kansas City Chiefs talked with the Philadelphia Eagles about a possible trade involving QB Nick Foles but there was no progress made.
Huddle Up: This makes a ton of sense, as new Chiefs coach Andy Reid was in Philly when Foles was drafted and made his NFL debut. And with Chip Kelly and his read-option offense now in Philadelphia, Foles could be available for a price. Now the key is the QB-needy Chiefs and QB-heavy Eagles reaching an agreement on a deal that would send Foles to Kansas City. Stay tuned...

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said that the team likely will not look to trade QB Nick Foles this offseason. 'Foles is a talented guy, and we just drafted him last year. I think this is a different situation than we've had the past couple of years where we had quarterbacks. We like the player. ... We're trying to accumulate good, young players. We're not in the business of trying to rid of good, young players,' Roseman said.
Huddle Up: Translation: If K.C. coach Andy Reid wants to swing a deal for his former QB, he's going to have to overpay.

The Kansas City Chiefs could express interest in Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles if he becomes available this offseason.
Huddle Up: This is a move that makes a ton of sense. Kansas City has a glaring need at the quarterback position, and new Chiefs coach Andy Reid has plenty of familiarity with Foles from their time together in Philadelphia last season.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (hand) underwent an MRI Monday which revealed a hairline fracture in his throwing hand. The injury will keep him out of the season finale.
Huddle Up: Which means, interestingly, welcome back, Michael Vick, who hasn't played since suffering a concussion Week 10 vs. the Cowboys. For Foles, meanwhile, it was a mixed bag as he completed 161-of-265 passes for 1,699 yards, 6 TDs and 8 turnovers, 5 of which were interceptions.

Philadelphia Eagles' QB Nick Foles completed 16-of-33 passes for 182 yards, a TD, interception and fumble, while RB Bryce Brown gained 45 total yards on 17 touches Thursday night in a 34-13 Week 15 home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Foles failed to follow up his career-best 381-yard, 3-TD outing against the Bucs in Week 14. The rookie QB was charged with a pair of turnovers, but the fumble should've went to Brown who never did find a grip on a good handoff in the second half. And as for Brown, the rookie RB has fallen off the fantasy map following back-to-back monster outings in Weeks 12 and 13 (a combined 347 rushing yards & 4 TDs) with a total of 39 rushing yards and no scores over his past 2 outings.
